WEST HOLLYWOOD, LA – This is great news for area romantics! App giant Tinder rolled out an update earlier today, which included a feature that alerts users if their potential match is from or resides in St. Landry Parish.
Users from the Southern Louisiana area had been requesting this for a while, and although it’s been a long time coming, both men and women from the area are pleased that it has finally come to fruition.
“This has been a top priority for developers here at Tinder”, explained spokesperson Mark Spencer. “We’ve had a lot of inquiries about making this a thing, so we wanted to get this out as soon as possible in order to keep people safe from those St. Landry parish folk.”
If the potential match is from St. Landry Parish, the pop-up alert informs the user of this and asks them if they just want to “go ahead and swipe left for them”.
Additionally, through the use of photo-scanning technology, the app can now detect if the match has a jacked-up truck in his or her photo gallery. If a truck is detected then the app will go ahead an instantly block them, saving you the heartache of having to see that.
And if that wasn’t enough, a message is also sent to the St. Landry Parish user suggesting that they try finding love at Louisiana Mudfest and/or Bayou Country Superfest (a small fix is coming for this since the Superfest was cancelled. Shame.)
“We’ve really invested a lot of time, energy and cutting-edge detection technology into ensuring that none of our users have to match with someone from St. Landry Parish”, said Spencer.
“We hope that this update brings a peace of mind to our users.”
